Well theyre officially done...and kids dont try this at home. Not a damn thing fit the way it was supposed to. All I had left to do was hook up the E-brake and put the dust shields on behind the rotors. Still working with all the parts off a 80somthing GT-S coupe the brake cables were a pain to get to work, but after fabbing a bracket and routing the cables they finally worked. And the dust shields that I thought would just bolt in placed, required some severe reworking. But alas....hopefully I can say the 1st xB in the US (if not the only) that has 4 wheel disk brakes with a working e-brake. :shock: Oh well even if not I like the look, but wouldnt do it again....so the wifeys xA is stuck with drums.... See Ya, Louie

Congratulations! Bummer that it turned out to be so much more work than you thought, but at least its done! Show it off at the big Scion meet (whenever it is.)

Thanx Highend. Yup...said lotsa baaaad words today :? But I am so glad that its done. They look so much better with the dust shields on now, alot more finished looking and makes the rotors look just a bit bigger. Next on the list are some 2 inch skirt extensions (all the way around), my own CAI, and Friday I debadged the lil box. See Ya, Louie 8)

Congrats Louie!!! Doesn't look too bad.
How's the brake feel now that you have 4-discs? Think you'll have any probs with the master cylinder not being proportionate?
01-12-2004, 06:00 AM
They feel great, just like stock. The proportioning seems to be OK. I figured that maybe the ABS would compensate for any differences, it seems to be just fine. Stops pretty good. See Ya, Louie 8)
Oh, Yea, Thanx. 8)

Great Job, Now you need to start making kits to sell( hint hint).
BTW, on your site they're from a GT-S Corolla, which is an AE86 (Levin or Trueno), not EA86. Just to let you know
